Palm Pre 2 Review

Palm brings to the latest smartphone called Palm Pre 2. The looks of this phone is similar to the original Palm Pre. The phone measures 100.7 x 59.6 x 16.9mm and weighs 145g. The phone is thinner than the predecessor. The phone has a glossy appeal and the back cover has rubber on it.

The Palm Pre 2 comes with a capacitive touch screen display that measures 3.1 inches and has a display resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. Even though the display is not AMOLED but still the colors look fine. When you slide the display upwards, it reveals the QWERTY keyboard and there is a reflective mirror on the backside of the display.

On the right side of the Palm Pre 2, you can find the microUSB port and on the left there is the volume controller. On the top, there is a power button, switch to turn the phone into vibrator mode, and 3.5mm audio jack. On the rear side, you can find 5 megapixel camera with LED flash. The Palm Pre 2 runs on webOS 2.2 and phones works faster than its predecessor. Multitasking on this phone is very good. The snappy performance of the phone is because of the 1GHz processor. It also 512 MB RAM and internal storage memory of 16GB. There is no external card slot on the phone. Setting up email accounts on this phone is easy. All you need to do is add the email address and password and you will be able to access your inboxes within seconds.

The 5 megapixel camera is a fixed focus one. Even though the Palm Pre 2 comes with LED flash, the images taken in dim lighting with flash are blurry and hazy. Even when good lighting is there, the details are lacking and images appear noisy. You can record videos at VGA resolution. The music player is good and simple to use and plays most of the famous audio formats. It can play videos of formats like H.264 and MPEG4.

As far as web connectivity is concerned, the Palm Pre 2 connects to the web through 3G (HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 2Mbps) and Wi-Fi. The web browser is very user-friendly. Since it lacks Flash, Flash based content cannot be viewed on it. You can use Google Maps to make use of the GPS feature. The Palm Pre 2 comes with a Li-Ion battery that gives a standby time of up to 350 hours and talk time of up to 5 hours and 30 minutes.
